Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.

Every student has a study method that works for them, and they all vary on their individual learning styles. I have tried many different methods in my education through high school and college, and have found a few that work for me. I tend to use flashcards, sometimes electronically if I’m on a time crunch, but I prefer physical flash cards, you know, the ones our grandparents would say they used back when they “had to walk up and down each hill to get to school every day.” I also sometimes like to get with a classmate or two and quiz one another on these flash cards or even off of the study guides if we were given them. I also tend to colour code my study materials to help me keep them straight in my mind. I’m always open to new methods, but until I find another that I like, this is what works for me.
